Donald Young School students and staff held their annual Spring Tea and Concert in the school gym, performing before an enthused audience of friends and relatives.
With spring in the air and an array of music presented, Jocelyn Matheson and Robert Galloway introduced each item on the program, which included several performances from the recent district music and drama festival.
Under the direction of Ms. Gustafson, the grade ones and the Save The Earth Club provided dance/mime, “The Circle of Life.”
The Junior Kindergarten class sang songs and recited poems entitled, “I’m a Little Chicken,” “The Turtle Poem,” and “Farmer in the Dell” directed by teacher Mrs. Loney.
Madame Gauthier and Ms. Bolen had her grade three students present a dance fusion, then the grade twos, under Mrs. Mose’s direction, performed “The Enormous Potato” that no one was able to push around.
Miss Wilde directed several students in musical selections with Marie-Ann deGroot at the piano. The Senior Kindergarten students, wearing dinosaur bonnets, sang “Sing Hosanna.”
Sarah Hoskins followed with the poem entitled, “Delicious Wishes,” Donny Matheson was next with his essay on “Our Forests, Our Future,” then the grades five/six did a rap presentation on “Save the Earth from Litter all Around.”
